Flos Oblique: A Desk Lamp for Modern Needs

Flos has debuted Oblique, the natural evolution of the classic swing arm office lamp. Envisioned as a revolutionary table lamp and designed by Vincent Van Duysen, Oblique's robust, compact structure produces a patented, powerful, and controlled asymmetric beam of light optimal for work surfaces.

"The starting point for the design process of Oblique was a completely new technology developed by Flos," said Vincent Van Duysen. "An ingenious combination of LEDs and lenses that only need a thin amount of space to produce an extremely bright and bundled beam of light that falls 'obliquely' from the luminaire head onto the table. I designed this luminaire around this core."

Made possible by an exclusive lens designed for incredible visual comfort as well as extreme efficiency, Oblique offers outstanding technology and functionality in a few simple but ingenious elements. It includes an integrated USB-C port into the base to charge additional devices and features a round flat head for minimal visual intrusion with a 355° rotatable stem and a patented ultra-flat lens with an efficiency of 97%.

Oblique is available in 6 colors: white, black, anthracite, rust orange, brown, and sage green.
